    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great mission, impactful for many girls in Utah

    Cons

    The salaries are not ideal, but that’s not a surprise ( it is a non profit) The surprise was the incredibly toxic environment. The top management constantly asked for input on improving the culture but always came to the conclusion that there was nothing they could do to make anyone happier. Employees wanted autonomy both in terms of their work (ie. no micromanaging, which was everywhere!) and flexible work schedules....

        No opinion of CEO

        I worked at Girl Scouts USA full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The camp director was very sweet and helpful, despite the unrealistic demands being made by the main office. The children were wonderful even when it was hard to give them interesting activities.

        Cons

        Some 12-hour days seemed a bit much, you have to pay $25 to become a Girl Scout member just to work as a camp counselor. I was shocked when one of the senior directors told another counselor that she couldn't wear her tank top that had wide straps and covered her. Way to empower girls! The directors from the main office expected us to make up all our own activities with little supplies and no beach front or similar activities...

        Advice to Management

        Help us come up with activities for the children instead of continuously telling us we are wrong. Take heat warning seriously...especially the ones that say children should not be outside that day.
